Fryston in hot water over Keighley treatment

Fryston in hot water

Keighley Cougars have issued the following statement following incidents at this weekend’s game against Fryston Warriors.

The club has today recieved official confirmation from the RFL that an investigation is taking place into the brawl that marred an otherwise enthralling cup tie.

Emmerson Whittel sustained a broken jaw and we believe as a club that the way he was man handled by numerous Fryston players is not in the spirit of the game.

The club have also requested that the ear bite on Josh Lynam is reviewed thoroughly by the RFL.

Finally, the club have also lodged a formal complaint in regards to the manner our players and staff were treated upon arrival.

Both the 19 man squad and members of the backroom staff were refused entry by Fryston Officials into the ground without a valid match day ticket.

The players allocation of family and friends tickets was then claimed to have been used to admit the playing squad and coaching staff into the ground.

The club is outraged by this development and will now not make any further statements as we await a full report from the RFL.

    the same situation regarding tickets applied to Fryston aswell so both teams were the same, Keighley are not so innocent as a Fryston player suffered a serious facial injury that does require surgery but they don’t mention that.
    there is footage of several Keighley players attacking 1 Fryston player thus they also have kept quiet about so in all fairness it’s been 6 of one and half a dozen of the other. it seems to me that Keighley are trying to get publicity and act like they are badly done to.
